Question about 1990 Ford Tempo
My girfriend and i just bought a 1990 tempo. upon trying to get an ignition key, the local shop was out of blanks...so we decided to wait till they got them in. unfortunitly, we have "misplaced" the only key we had. i have called the local dealership and due to the age of the car, they cant make one from the VIN. i can get a new cyclinder and keys from autozone, but havent a clue on how to change this. can someone possibly give me some guideance on how to do this or where to find info on how to do this. thanks in advance for your time.
Hi. Had a similar problem when I bought a car. Guy selling it had no keys. He already changed the ignition cylinder with one from local parts store (he drilled out the old one. It seemed to work, but I don't know if its the right way). I still didn't have the keys to the door. I removed the lock cylinder from the door and took it to a locksmith. He made a key for about $25. On some cars, the door and ignition are the same key, so this may have worked to get me an ignition switch. I still need to take out the trunk cylinder to get a key (its different than the door). I hope the electric switch keeps working. I know this is late, but thought I would post it.
